The Internet is a collection of networks and gateways that use Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to handle data transfer and message conversion from the sending network to the receiving network.

In addition to providing Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) support, Microsoft Exchange Server supports the following:

You can set properties for Internet protocols at the site level or at the server level by using the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program. For more information on configuring properties for NNTP, POP3, IMAP4, LDAP, and HTTP, see Microsoft Exchange Server Operations.
